I'm sitting in my living room, writing, for the first time since we moved. I can't remember the last time I opened my laptop. I just put N to bed and I'm putting together my to do list for tomorrow. Every room is unpacked but the crafting/playroom and my Pyrex is still sitting in boxes, waiting to be cleaned and arranged. Truth be told, the latter is my motivation to get everything else done. *smile*
I could tell you all about everything that went wrong during our move and with our new place - and that would take up an entire post - but I just want to focus on is the happy. To put it in twitter terms, everything we dealt with were #firstworldproblems. Everything has been fixed and we are happily settling in.
We have been blessed with a three bedroom long term rental home that was built in the early 1950s but completely renovated earlier this year. It has the charm, the hardwood floors, and the quirks that I love and the modern appliances that the hubs was looking for. I promise - there will be a home tour once everything is decorated and my DIY projects are finished.
For now, here's a sneak peek of some of the corners of our new place:
our coffee bar, complete with vintage Maid of Honor canisters
(p.s. I'm in search of the other two - flour & tea - keep an eye out for me, please!)
my "new" vintage china cabinet that will soon be filled with Pyrex & one bad kitty
my newest granny afghan & custom pillow from Milo & Molly
vintage syrup container + dish soap = a fabulous idea I wish I had thought of first
aqua bins & frames from IKEA, hand painted vase by me, blocks by Bubblewrapp'd
my happy girl at our home away from home (IKEA)
